  • 1. Take a Tour

    Families are welcome to contact LAKEVIEW by email, phone, or by visiting the school website to schedule a meeting and tour of our campus. The first step is to attend a tour, which includes a parent information session, where you will gain valuable information about the Montessori philosophy and the culture at our school. Please note, these initial sessions are for adults only to ensure you can give your full attention to what we must share with you. After a complete tour of our school, all questions will be addressed. At the end of the tour, parents will be given an information package to take home to review.
    PRESCHOOL STUDENTS

    Student Visit – Infant, Toddler and Casa: At the end of the tour and parent info session a date will be scheduled for the family to return with their child(ren). This is a special time when the child will spend a half hour in the class to become comfortable with the idea of coming to school and to see if the program is a good fit for the child.

    Offer of Admission: Once the tour, parent information session and the visit for the child(ren) have been completed, an offer of admission with the link to register your child will be sent through email. As part of the complete registration process, the child’s immunization record, health card number and passport or birth certificate will be requested and collected as required by the CCEYA. These will be added to your child’s Ontario Student Record and kept in a confidential location in the school office. Parental release forms and auto-debit forms will be collected to finalize the registration process.

    ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

    Student Visit – Lower, Upper and Senior: At the elementary level (age 6 to 14 years) and applicable space is available, the Admissions Coordinator will schedule a full-day classroom visit for your child directly after the tour and parent info session. You will be required to bring your child’s latest report card from their current school, as well as, any other applicable pertinent documents, such as assessments, IEPs, psychological reports and recommendations, etc. At the end of your child’s visit and review of all documents regarding the child, a meeting will be scheduled with the Head of School to discuss the opportunity for admission to Lakeview.
     
    Offer of Admission – New Students: After the visit and meeting with the Head of School, an offer of admission will be sent through email with a Letter of Acceptance within one week detailing the start date for your child. This correspondence will also include the link to register your child. As part of the complete registration process, the child’s immunization record, health card number and passport or birth certificate will be requested and collected as required by the Ministry of Education. These will be added to your child’s Ontario Student Record and kept in a confidential location in the school office. Parental release forms and auto-debit forms will be collected to finalize the registration process.
  • 2. Additional Needs

    In the event that a child has needs (for example: a unique learning style, physical restrictions, speech delays etc.) Lakeview Montessori School reserves the right to request up to 3 visits for the child to experience our classroom. Lakeview Montessori School has limited resources to support individual students. As a result parents may be encouraged to contact CCAC or Children’s First for further classroom support. During the visits the classroom teacher and the Head of School will observe and gauge the child’s needs. A meeting with the parents will take place to review the outcome, the possibility of placement, and any recommendations for the prospective student.
     
  • 3. Register

    Once the registration documents are completed families are asked to schedule an appropriate time to submit their completed forms along with payment.
  • 4. Acceptance

    Families will receive a formal welcome letter from Lakeview Head of School identifying the newly registered student, the class they are enrolled in, the teacher and assistants of the  class, and the schedule that they have been registered for. Any additional documentation will be sent home as well so that all necessary forms are complete for the child’s first day of school.
  • 5. Conditions of Acceptance

    Every application requires that parents/guardians sign a “Conditions of Acceptance” form. This document outlines the school’s policies and conditions that apply to all students.
